Thanks for your input.
thinking of getting
1 of these... and
2 0f these or one of each for a 5x3
1 of these for a 3 x 3
any suggestions? are these any good?
well going with LED's is a good choice but NOT going with vipar spectra lamps would be good also. I know guys who got these lights when they were at their original prices for hundreds more.
this forum has an excelent LED section where you can get more info on whats best to go with today.
its in the indoor section of the grow room
I'm running a 600W Vipaspectra and am getting great results. Now, it's my first grow so I'm not so educated on what makes a great LED, but for the low cost, Vipaspectra isn't a bad deal. But don't expect any sort of customer service from them.....
I have 3 VS lights. Really liking this one. http://www.viparspectra.com/goods.php?id=67
That just became my number 1 on my list for santa!! Lol. Have you used the dimming option much?
Got it 4 weeks into flower on the last grow. Saw some suggestions on tuning down blue and adding more red for the last weeks. Really happy with the grow. Doing a Wonder Woman this grow. Get to play dials more this time. I used some info from the KIND page. It's a good light for the price. I also have the 300 and 600 with Veg/ Bloom option. https://www.kindledgrowlights.com/b...ght-settings-for-all-stages-of-indoor-growing
i found cobs with more power for the price of the visra specta.. still shoping
2 for veg
1 for bloom
for clones, starts and males..
Viparspectra V300 LED Grow Light for $84. From what I've seen it's the best deal on the market for a 300 watt light.
Look at the review on You Tube. It's a great light for the money.
live and learn
You could shop and get a much better deal buying each item. And you certainly don't want one of those shitty "burple" chinese lights! Buy a good cob based light, there are several good vendors right here on RUI. Tents are not expensive. I could put together a better package for a lot less than that! And thats only a 2x4 tent! You can get one that size on ebay for $60! add 4 cobs and a driver from cobkits, you have a $250 light that will kill it in that space. Get you some air pots or auto pots, $50-$100, a good 4" fan, ducting, and filter, maybe another $100. your under $600 and have a MUCH better setup. Everyone of these "package deals" is a rip off!
Where can I find 4 cob lights and a driver for 250?
everybody buying these will be buying real LEDs within a year or two
Don't slag the vipar leds, they are maybe the best in burples. Stick one of the 200 watts units in among your cobs/quantum boards/cmh etc and you may get a surprise.
hell no I aint drinking that koolaid
Agreed. These units are such a damn waste of money.

Anywhere high quality cobs like bridgelux and Cree run $8-60 each depending on what model you run. Meanwell drivers are more expensive but worth it $75 for their 250w model . I built with 2 meanwell drivers 500w total and 16 Vero cobs $12 each 16 heatsinks$15 each and aluminum to make a frame and I came in at $600 results speak for themselves, 4x4 week 3 of flower
